Aquaponics up and Running




the aquaponics system is up and running now. It takes about 2 weeks for the bacteria to fully colonize the biofilter so that fish can be added to the system. I am still researching what fish to grow. Our warm season is too short for tilipia. I found a hatchery here in Georgia that has developed a fast growing hybrid bream. That just be what i need.
Next time i post about this i will explain how it all works.

That is so cool! Can't wait to hear more about what fish you can raise. I'm not a huge tilipia fan. (SoCal has me so spoiled!)
